A word from our soon to be Baron of Blatha An Oir,
HL Hengist Helgason
,

regarding the criteria for the Lord Defender
tournament:



“This years Lord Defender tournament will be a round robin,
mixed weapons, best 2 out of 3 tourney.



The combatants will each roll a die to determin
e
which of 5 weapon styles they will use.



Once the winner of that fight is determined the combatants will
change weapons to what their opponent was 
using.



If the match goes 3 round the combatants may use their weapon style
of choice.



The top 4 will fight a 1/4 final with all four combatants fighting
each other.



The top 2 will fight 3 mixed weapon battles to determine victor.
The weapon styles will be:



1) Sword and Shield



2) Axe and Shield



3) Danish Axe



4) Spear



5) Great Sword



6) Baroness Choice”

 

    A
call from the A&S Champion and Defender of Blatha An Oir, as
well as requirements for entry into the
competition:


 


 I, Angharat verch Reynulf, current A & S Champion of
Blatha an Oir give you greetings and request you listen to my
plea.





Lo, these past months have I
labored with needle, kitchen and books to represent our Barony as
Champion throughout the Kingdom of An Tir.  Many are the
classes I have attended, hosted or even taught, many more are
those other gentles I have seen creating, learning and teaching
within the boundaries of this, our golden Barony.  With Lord
Defenders Tourney coming up in September, I call
for those who wish to Contend to become the new Arts and
Sciences Champion to come forth!







 I will be keeping to the
streamlined rules Blatha an Oir has been using for the last few
years:





1) 2 Items with at least 1 page of
Documentation each





2) The Items must be
different disciplines although they may relate to each
other (i.e. culinary and metalwork, scribal and sewing,
weaving/spinning and embroidery) 





3) The items must be from the same
time frame (give or take 10 years) and from the same region/area
(i.e. both from Wales, France, or applicable
city/state/country).





To be eligible for Lord Defenders,
you must have worked on and completed your items within
this year – they need not have been started, but worked on and
finished.  After all, many projects take more than a year to
start from scratch!





If you wish to enter a single item
into the Populace A & S Competition & Display,
you must still make or complete the item within this year to enter
it.





Please contact me
at 
moc.liamg@guardelec  if
you have questions or are desirous to compete for the honor of
representing our Barony, to let me know what you intend to
enter, so that I may request judges who are at least familiar
with your skills or sciences to give your labors the
fairest observation as possible.







Thank you,





Angharat verch
Reynulf



Arts & Sciences Champion of
Blatha an Oir



Courtier, Blatha an
Oir



Per chevron purpure and argent,
two wolves rampant argent and a dragon displayed
sable.”

 


A call from your Thrown Weapons Defender and Champion, as well as
requirements for the tournament!


 
“To
the populace of Blatha An Oir do I, Sir Gernon Valletort, the
current Thrown Weapons Champion of this, the greatest Barony in the
Known World, send greetings. As my time protecting the golden
thrones of the Barony come to an end, do issue forth this
challenge:
 



To win the day and receive the honor of protecting these lands as
the next Thrown Weapons Champion, you must prevail over all other
combatants in the following
format. 



Three stations will be setup, one for
knives, spears and
axes.
 



Thirty weapons will be thrown (one
for each year of the Barony) and the highest score in each style
will advance to the final
round.
 



Each of the three combatants who have
had the fortune to advance to the final round will then draw from a
hat to see what their final weapon style will be, be it knife,
spear or axe.
 

Thirty more weapons of the drawn
style will be thrown and the highest score shall hence forth be
known as the Thrown Weapons Champion of Blatha An
Oir.
 

In Service to Crown and
Kingdom,

Sir Gernon Valletort du
Harfluer”
